Diversity in the Library Collection

The Library is undertaking a project to bring more diversity to our collection and we need your help.

We welcome suggestions of items for purchase that will help us develop our collection to be more inclusive of any marginalized community, whether they be associated with race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, physical ability, socioeconomic class, or any other underrepresented group. We are looking for diversity in topics and in voices.

Please let us know if the item you’re requesting is for a course or if you have another use in mind. Please submit your suggestions and purchases will be made within the allocated budget.
